Hi there – practice, practice, practice. The EF 50mm f/1.8 is what photographers usually start with with regards to portrait photography. Once you find your own photography style, you’ll start to get more comfortable with portrait photography and put your subjects at ease, bringing out their natural character for you to photograph.

Hey CanonAustralia! I’m quite green to photography, and I’m using a Canon Rebel T3 ( I thinks it’s the 5500D in Europe). My basic question is: does a lens with a higher aperture (like the Canon 50mm f/1.8) make better portraits? Also, what is the one thing that would really help my portait photography?

CanonAustralia says:

We believe it’s called a warm tone. That’s why photographers love to shoot in the “golden hour” – it gives subjects a warm/golden tone. You can then undersaturate the photograph to achieve the look in 1:38. Hope it helps. Cheers, the Canon team.

Anthony Tran says:

I LOVE the color tone of the picture at 1:38. Does anyone know how to achieve this kind of color tone in lightroom or photoshop? I’d love to know, thanks!

Great video, great tips. One thing distracts, however: the music keeps repeating in the background, and it does not “go” with what he is saying – maybe in future just let the photographer talk? Thanks for really useful hints and suggestions anyway!

The gum is part of our annual EOS Photo5 competition for that particular year. Cheers, the Canon team.

CanonAustralia says:

Glad that you like the video. Thanks, the Canon team.

zergox says:

This is a bit like the Nikon Australia videos, only with more useful information and far less pushing a particular product. Excellent work.

CanonAustralia says:

It’s diaphragm. Cheers, the Canon team.

CanonAustralia says:

Ah right – this video is actually a guide on how to shoot photographs for one of our contests. And the gum has to be in the picture as part of the challenge. Cheers

daSenfgurke says:

2:44 what does he mean, having a gum in the portrait?

daSenfgurke says:
